The Nigerian government has vowed to recover millions of Naira wrongly paid to 588 medical doctors.

Labour Minister, Chris Ngige spoke in a chat with State House reporters in Abuja on Sunday.

Ngige said the affected doctors wrongly benefitted from the Medical Residency Training Fund meant for a particular category of doctors.

Their names were uncovered after a scrutiny of the 8,000 names submitted by Chief Medical Directors of federal institutions.

He said about 2,000 names should have been omitted because they don’t have Postgraduate Reference Numbers of National Postgraduate Medical College and (or) that of the West African Postgraduate Medical College.

The minister, however, disclosed that a substantial amount of the money had been refunded by some of the health personnel.

Ngige said result of the first round of scrutinization will be compared to the lists the Post-Graduate Medical College and the Chief Medical Directors presented.

He assured that once the authenticity of names submitted are verified, the Accountant-General will pay the beneficiaries.

“We are doing that verification because we do not want what happened last time in 2020 to reoccur”, the minister added.
